I did know about Ganesha statue having his trunk in different direction but never came across in such detail understanding that RahulJi and TheSpirtualIndian has shared. So this article has information that is amalgamation of my own as well as written by my colleague RahulJi and TheSpirtualIndian,
Lord Ganesha is the 1st lord & is known for removing obstacles from life i.e. HE rules the 3 Swar of us :
Note: In above image…Left sided is Right sided and vice-versa. So I consider side of Ganesha and not our own left or right side.
“Ganesha with Left Trunk: For householders, it is strongly advisable to keep left sided Ganesha statue at home. Left sided Ganesha statue are believed to be representing Ida Nadi which is more cooling side or you can relate it to the moon. It is more feminine, cooling, nourishing and relaxing energy
Ganesha with Right Trunk : Right sided Ganesha statue is believed to be representing your Pingala Nadi which is related with sun energy. It is masculine and has fiery nature but can give quick results. If the fire is used properly can cook your food and the same fire element will also help you to digest food in your stomach. However, the same fire can burn you also, if handled improperly. So you have to follow the rituals properly if you want to have right sided Ganesha Statue in your home or in your pooja place. Also, you need to worship the Ganesha statue with right sided trunk as per rituals on every day. Any mistake in ritual can bring the wrath of the deity. The Ganesha statue with trunk on the right side is called as ‘Siddhi Vinayaka‘ because if worshiped correctly then it can give quick results or siddhis.
Ganesha with Straight Trunk : It signifies that the Sushumna Nadi is entirely open. Such idols are very rare and special. Even more special is the trunk where the trunk is swung upright in the air. It means the kundalini shakti has reached the Sahasrara (crown chakra) permanently.
Ganesha is a sattvic deity. So avoid having non-veg food at home. Create a pure environment at home. The favorite food of Lord Ganesha is Modak and Laddu. Whenever you plan to make prasad for Ganesha then make with a lot of devotion and purity. Never taste the food which is meant to be offered to Lord Ganesha. Once Ganesha has taken the prasad then only you can consume the food as a prasad. Secondly, avoid adding onions and garlic to the food which is meant to be offered to Lord Ganesha.
